Humor Chic News - THE DAILY MIRROR "Disabled Disney princesses Snow White and Cinderella created by artist to challenge idea of 'perfect woman'"

Italian artist Alexsandro Palombo tackles beauty by re-imagining classic characters for a series of provocative artworks

An artist has challenged the portrayal of the 'perfect' woman by recreating Disney characters like Snow White and Cinderella with DISABILITIES.

Italian Alexsandro Palombo wants to reinforce the belief that beauty is in the eye of the beholder - and not in the power of the media.

In his work Disabled Disney Princesses, Ariel, Belle, from Beauty and the Beast, Mulan and Snow White are wheelchair-bound.

While Pocahontas, who walks with the aid of crutches, Princess Aurora, from Sleeping Beauty and Cinderella are redrawn as amputees.

Above the collection of the classic and well-loved characters is an inscription in the recognisable Disney font that reads: "Do you still like us?".

Palombo, who runs the website Humour Chic where he posts his artwork, wants his work to breakdown stereotypes of beauty.
